Getting Your Head in the Game

To follow up yesterday’s post about finding some positive head space, wanted to add a couple of resources I’ve come across recently.  As I’ve said, I think that more than half the battle is finding a strategy that’s personally meaningful, and that can take some amount of trial and error.  The links below are free resources you can try out for yourself.

This week’s Runner Academy podcast had an interview with Dr. David Asp, who discusses productive goal-setting, impostor syndrome, and aspects of mental preparation.  There is also a  free 25-minute visualization audio by Dr. Asp available for download on the site.

Carrie Cheadle has given several webinars for endurance athletes which are available on YouTube, including this one on the Psychology of Suffering.  She is the author of Top of Your Game, which is in the Kindle Lending Library, and her website has additional free resources and downloads.  I like her goal-setting worksheets in particular.

Good luck!
